God's Treasures...

Children’s and Nursery Ministries

"We have this treasure in earthen vessels." 2 Corinthains 4:7

Our goal at FPC Gallatin is to reach families beginning from the cradle up by providing quality ministry opportunities for our little ones. Jesus said in Matthew 19:14, "Let the children come to me. Don't stop them! For the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to those who are like these children." We believe that our children are very special. In fact, we believe that they are precious gifts of God. They are Treasures. Some may be diamonds in the rough, but they are all unique individuals with extraordinary gifts.

Little Gems

Our nursery age children, the "Little Gems," are nurtured by professionally trained staff and volunteers and strive to provide an atmosphere of learning and security. The nursery is provided for all regulary scheduled services for children ages infant to two-years-old. 

Precious Jewels

Our precshool class is for children ages three and four-year-old. If they are three years old and potty trained by October 1st, they may attend this class. This class focuses on beginning Bible stories that illustrate God's love for us and our place in His world. It is our hope to open our children's eyes to the treasures that God has placed in His word, just for them.

Treasure Hunters

Our early elementary class is for childre who are attending Kindergarten through 2nd grade. This class explores and digs for God's Treasures through music, stories, giving and crafts, giving the children a real connection to God's Word utilizing all their senses of sight, sound, hearing and touching. Together they will experience a journey that will be the building blocks of their faith in Christ.

Digging Deep

 

Our upper elementary class is for chidren who are attending 3rd, 4th, or 5th grades. This class is Digging Deep to discover the gold nuggets of God's truth that are not always lying on the surface. This class is structured to prepare our children for a more matrue walk with Christ, one that emphasizes worship, service, independent Bible study and prayer.

Young Disciples

Young Disciples is our children's worship time for children 5 years of age through 2nd grade. Young Disciples is held each Sunday morning beginning with a children's sermon or "Conversation with our Children," which takes place in the sanctury during the 10:30 worship service. Our children are then led to a Sunday school room where they are taught the elements of worship utilizing all their senses through music, prayer, stories and crafts. It is our goal to give our children a greater understanidng of wowrship by the time they are in the 3rd grade.

 

Adventure Kid's Club

Kid's Club is for children in Kindergarten through 5th grade. They meet each Sunday evening from 6:00-7:30. This is a time for our childre to get together in a less formal environment. We begi the evening witha meal and then move into fun-tiem emphasizing the importance of teamwork, sharing, laughter and God's presence in their every day lives.

The Treasure Chest

The Treasure Chest meets on Wednesday evenings from 6:00-7:30. The children gather for dinner and then open the Treasure Chest to discover what surprises are stored inside.
